Dynamos plummeted to 15th on the Castle Lager Premier Soccer League table and are undeniably knee-deep in crisis after losing to the current log leaders FC Platinum at Rufaro Stadium on Sunday. The result did not go down well with the club’s multitudes of supporters who resorted to violence in demonstration of their displeasure of the team’s current performance.
According to an impeccable source, the Keni Mubaiwa led board is tirelessly working flat out to restore sanity at the most supported team in the country. The source reveal that the club president Keni Mubaiwa is looking for a coach to lead the Glamour Boys for the rest of the campaign.
Following the ouster of Silva, the club had engaged Mutasa to take charge on an interim basis while they are looking for a substantive coach. Information gathered by this publication can reveal that if Mutasa proves beyond any reasonable doubt he can lead the team, they would give him the job.
“What we have done is we have appointed Lloyd Mutasa as coach on interim basis while we are looking for a substantive coach. Right now I am sure there should be applicants applying for the job and once we get the coach we want we will make an announcement. We have not really set a target of points for Lloyd because we can get a coach anytime. But it doesn’t mean that we are not considering him (Lloyd). If he proves himself, he will get the job,” the source was quoted saying.
Meanwhile, as SportBrief reported yesterday, former Dynamos captain Murape Murape and Clayton Munemo have bee ropped in the latest Dynamos technical team and are expected to begin work today as assistants to Mutasa who is seeking to prove he deserves the substantive job as Dynamos coach.
With a trip to Tsholotsho next before engaging Highlanders at home and fixtures against Chapungu and Ngezi Platinum to come, Dynamos are in danger of finding themselves in unfamiliar situation of battling relegation.
